Home again

We've just returned from a trip 'down South', where we enjoyed this:

One of many trips to Birling Gap, our favourite beach, with its amazing white chalk cliffs, pebbles, rocks, waves and, when we were there, glorious blue skies!

The Seven Sisters (the chalk cliffs in the distance) - you can find out a little bit more about them here .

We only had one afternoon of this:

...but we went prepared!

Lovely views of the South Downs, including this one from a little side street in Alfriston (home of Much Ado Books)

I wish my Post Office looked like this one!!

We caught up with family and friends that we don't get to see very often and it just felt so good to be by the sea. We had such a lovely time and were thoroughly spoilt - good weather, good company, good food and wine - who could ask for more!

Now we are home again...time to catch up with gardening, washing, ironing......and all the blog posts I've missed!

Hope you're enjoying a sunny weekend where you are.

Back soon,



  1. Love the post office! Glad you had good weather too!

  2. It's a lovely part of the world and you're right you only have to pack one or two extra bits and you can still have fun enjoying the simple things in life. When we go camping I take one or two games from the fifties for wet weather and we have grreat fun!

  3. Those Cliffs are amazing, it looks like a lovely place. That little side street in Alfriston - very much like Orford in SUffolk.

  4. I was interested to read about your trip to Alfriston.My husband and I like to walk from the village of Milton Street to Alfriston along by the river,and then back for lunch at The Sussex Ox,a lovely pub with superb views.Do visit my blog sometime.
